Round 2: South Africa vs Rest of the World – Virtual tasting – Thursday 24th March


You’ll likely have heard us remonstrating about how South African wines offer far greater value for money compared to almost any other expression of the same style at a comparable, or even higher, price point.


Our first SA vs Rest of the World tasting proved this, in a blind tasting format, the South African challengers bettered their higher priced peers with the final score 2-0 from three rounds with only Les Noisetiers Chardonnay able to save face by holding Uva Mira’s Single Tree Chardonnay to a dead heat, albeit the American wine costing twice as much at £120 per bottle.


This time we’re going all out, with four of the eight wines costing over £100 per bottle and wines included that can only be described as having cult icon status within the wine industry. How will the South Africans fare this time around? Order your pack now to get involved and be the first to find out…


We will be tasting four pairs of head-to-head wines, having teamed up with Blind Faith once more the tasting will be only be partially blind this time, the two whites are both Chardonnays made in polar opposite styles and both of the reds are Bordeaux blends although one pair is labelled as a single cultivar thanks to its percentage of the dominant variant being more than 85% on each.


All you have to doing is determine which are South African and which are from the ‘Rest of the World’. Easy right?


For anyone not familiar with the Blind Faith tasting format, the wines are dispensed into 68ml pouches and will be dispatched on Monday 21st March ahead of the live reveal on Thursday 30th March at 7pm. You’ll taste the wines in your own time, submit your answers using a google form and we’ll then announce what the wines actually are live on Zoom.


PLEASE NOTE: Packs will be dispatched via APC by Blind Faith, if ordering other wines at the same time the wines will come from us whilst the packs will come separately. Please allow longer than our usual 2-3 day delivery time as the wines will need to be sent to Blind Faith, dispensed into the pouches then dispatched to you. Please be advised that it is not possible to send tasting packs earlier than the date specified above as they all need to be dispensed together in order to ensure the condition of the wines by the time the tasting takes place.
